神父講道 – 將臨期第二週 (週一) (2010年12月6日)

聖尼閣(尼各老)主教
恭讀聖路加福音 5: 17-26
一天,耶穌教訓人時,法利塞人和法律學士也在座。他們是從加黎利各鄉村和猶太及耶路撒冷來的。主的德能使他治癒病人。看,人們用榻抬來一個癱子,設法抬進去放在耶穌跟前。但因了人多,找不到抬他進去的路,就上屋頂把他連榻從瓦片間吊下,放在中間,正放在耶穌跟前。耶穌見了他們的信心,就說:「人啊!你的罪赦了。」
經師和法利塞人開始忖度說:「這人是誰!竟出言褻瀆?除了獨一天主外,誰能赦罪?」耶穌看透了他們的心思,對他們說:「你們心中忖度甚麼呢!哪個比較容易?說:『你的罪赦了』;或說:『你起來走吧』?為了叫你們知道,人子在世上有赦罪的權柄……」於是他對癱子說:「我對你說,起來!拿起你的榻,回到家裏去吧!」那人立即在他們面前站了起來,拿起他躺過的榻,回家去了,一路讚美天主。眾人都十分驚奇,也讚美天主,並且滿心敬畏,說:「我們今天見到了奇跡了。」

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 5:17-26

17 On one of those days, as he was teaching, there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was with him to heal. 18 And behold, men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they sought to bring him in and lay him before Jesus; 19 but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. 20 And when he saw their faith he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this that speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?” 22 When Jesus perceived their questionings, he answered them, “Why do you question in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk?’ 24 But that you may know that the Son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins” –he said to the man who was paralyzed– “I say to you, rise, take up your bed and go home.” 25 And immediately he rose before them, and took up that on which he lay, and went home, glorifying God. 26 And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen strange things today.”

路5:17-26 (其他經文──依35:1-10   詠85)
有一天,耶穌正在施教,幾個法利塞人和法學士也在座。他們是從加里肋亞和猶太各鄉村及耶路撒冷來的;上主的德能催迫耶穌治病。看,有人用床抬來一個患癱瘓症的人,設法把他抬進去,放在耶穌跟前。但因人眾多,不得其門而入。遂上了房頂,從瓦中間,把他連那小床繫到中間,正放在耶穌面前。耶穌一見他們的信心,就說:「人啊!你的罪赦了。」經師和法利塞人開始忖度說:「這人是誰?竟說褻瀆話?除了天主一個外,誰能赦罪?」耶穌看透了他們的心思,就向他們說:「你們心裡忖度什麼呢?什麼比較容易?是說:你的罪赦了,或是說:起來行走吧!但?叫你們知道人子在地上有權赦罪。」便對癱子說:「我給你說:起來,拿起你的小床,回家去吧!」那人立刻在他們面前站了起來,拿著他躺過的小床,回家去了。眾人十分驚奇,並光榮天主,滿懷恐懼說:「今天我們看見了出奇的事。」

默 想

  • 對上主的信心,憑的不是我們自己,是祂。
  • 尚未被治癒,罪未得赦,因為不相信祂可以救贖。
  • 靠的,是對基督無限的信。
  • 癱子與幫助他的人,對耶穌有一顆單純的信,他們知道,只要在耶穌面前,獲救指日可待。
  • 經師和法利塞人則想多了,也變得不再單純,只懂將茅頭指向耶穌,挑戰他這樣那樣。
